These are just what one of the stores in town lists. My screen shows their shelf and their local warehouse's shelf, but the other parts they list are in the system and probably on the shelf at the next warehouse over- I just can't tell exactly how available they are without calling and bothering one of their counterpeople. I hate bothering counterpeople who are probably trying to post something on the web at the moment.

The chrome capped lug nuts are great because the chrome caps aren't very forgiving when a partially trained monkey takes an impact gun to them with a "close enough" sized socket. This ain't horseshoes or hand grenades, and there are some lug nuts that I sell in 20s to some of the chain type garages. They're also my best customers for pressure sensors: a careful wrench can avoid damaging them, but a guy who demolishes lug nuts for a living can only stand there and mumble something about how the aluminum rotted away, it was about to fall apart anyway and you're lucky it happened while you were here.
